Could you make it Zephyri?

scblovesnames Says:


Wow, this is quite pretty, and I would never have considered it if my SIL didn't keep coming back with unusual Z names she really likes. Zephyr for a boy Zephrine for a girl. I like the middle name of Micaela with this.

indiajuliet Says:


Zef-fur-een, spelled Zéphyrine. There is a slight emphasis on the first syllable - but it's very mild and probably not noticeable unless you're French.

paulapuddephatt Says:


I've not seen this name before, and I love it. I'm already a fan of Zephyr for boys. This is striking and so beautiful. Instant favourite. 😃

paulapuddephatt Says:


Zeh-fur-een is roughly how I would say it.

Marie-Zéphyrine of France was the elder sister of the future King Louis XVI of France, who was beheaded during the Revolution. She was born during the reign of her paternal grandfather, Louis XV, and died at the age of 5. The court did not even officially mourn her death because princesses had to be at least 7 when they passed to warrant an official period of mourning.

I love Zephyr, but I'm not quite sold on Zephyrine. I kind of like it since I'm drawn to a lot of -ine ending names, and it does sound quirky yet weighty and lovely. But Zephyrine looks and sounds more clunky to me- Zephyr had just the right number of syllables to sound perfectly industrious and windswept, while the extra -ine here rather weighs the name down for me. I definitely prefer Zephyr to Zephyrine.
